Westminister man fatally stabbed allegedly by girlfriend

Westminister police are seeking a 32-year-old woman suspected of fatally stabbing a man believed to be her boyfriend on Thursday, Sept. 28.

Ashley Dee-Anna Charnley allegedly stabbed the man in the abdomen around 8 p.m. Wednesday in the 13000 block of Goldenwest Street, near the 22 Freeway, Westminster Police Department Sgt. Alan Aoki said.

The victim was taken to a hospital after Westminister Police Department officers and Orange County Fire Authority paramedics began life-saving measures. He died at the hospital, Aoki said.

``Charnley and the victim are believed to have been in a dating relationship, however, the motive for the stabbing is unclear," Westminister Police Department Deputy Chief Cameron Knauerhaze said in a statement.

According to Aoki, Charnley is known to frequent motels around the North and West Orange County areas and authorities described her as a 5-foot, 9-inch white woman weighing 175 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Her last known place of residence was in Mission Viejo.
